April 11, 1944. Capt. Clarence "Bud" Anderson was flying his P-51B "Old Crow" west of Hanover, Germany. Anderson flew lead for "Chambers White" flight. On this escort mission, Anderson got his 2nd kill. A head on pass with a Me-109 resulted in Anderson getting many hits on the l09's nose. Anderson stated, "I fired short bursts. I could see incendiaries bursting all over the front of the l09. The propeller flew off. The engine cowling blew off. Then off came the canopy and out came the pilot." Behind Anderson was 1st Lt. Ed Simpson flying Chamber's White #3. He confirmed Anderson's victory.
